I needed to have an area of my home treated for subterranean termites. Sean provided profession service from start to finish. He went above and beyond others who were bidding for the project.

I used Accuracy Plus Termite & Pest Control at my house for termites and pest control. Joe, the technician, was very professional and took care of my termite problems as well as my spider problem. I would recommend this company. Gayle - Orange County

So I seen some droppings in the backyard behind the garage & thought I had Termites. I called to see how much it would cost to get an inspection & come to find out it was free. When Courtney arrived I showed him the area & he pointed out that it was just cricket droppings. He then inspected the house for termites & found none & not to be worried he did find a couple of areas that had dry rot on them & gave me a quote & he will be doing the work this upcoming week. I am so far really satisfied with his knowledge & really fair price. I think I’m going to refer him to a couple of my friends.

Great company! John and Marcos came out for a housewide interior/exterior spray and free termite inspection. Thorough, informative, extremely reasonable price wise, and took the time also to de-cobweb the exterior or the house. Will be scheduling more service in the future!

Outstanding experience! First, I contacted Manual looking for a pest control company; only to find out later in the week, I actually needed a termite inspection. So I had to call and let Manual know my priorities had changed and I would not need him. Manual remained very professional; he thanked me and still sent me my bid for the job along with his business card. I thought to myself what a professional young man! The following week, the termite inspector gave me a bid that had very minimal damage at a reasonable cost to repair. Therefore, I had the work completed. And... sent a email and asked Manual if he would like to come out and complete a one time spray inside and out we could then discuss a annual contract. I have signed his contract; all because he displayed a professional image of his company and himself! Looking forward to working with you Manual!

Ken just showed up today after we had a few dozen flying termite-looking bugs showed up on our interior wall last night. I vacuumed them and we called Acme. Ken identified them as harmless ants that must have somehow came in from outside. He gave us some good tips, no charge, now we know how to identify termites as well as what to do about other pests we have floating around here. Very helpful, professional, and knowledgeable. Also like the fact that Acme is able to repair termite damage afterward, something most others aren’t able to provide. Thanks Ken.

We have been homeowners for 14 years and have never hired pest control. We recently moved to a new home that has a lot of pests and wildlife. We were happy to get lucky with Ravega pest control. Marco came out asap and explained different solutions to take control of our yard. He offered us different options for maintenance. He also noticed termites which our home was supposed to be exterminated from the "home sale" inspection. Luckily Marco took pics and I was able to send the termites pics to the other pest control to come clean up their work. Thanks to Marco we feel like have a plan to rid of our brown widows and other pests. Would happily recommend him!

I work from home, and this was not a big deal for me to get estimates. I got 3 quotes about 2 months ago and put them on hold for a while. Then I decided to call one more guy to make sure no more termites are here before starting tenting. Then I ended up calling 3 more companies, and 2 of them did not check my house properly. One of them asked me to pay $65 to go check underneath. But not Wallace from Prime Termite- it took him only about half an hour to check my house really good, and he found lot more stuff other guys did not find. I ended up having ground termites too in the basement, but either they were new or other guys did not find them. I figured out that if this was how they inspect, that's the way they would do other works too - half or part of it done. He offered me either to tent or do no chemical green sprays. I work from home and also am health conscious. So went with their green sprays. it took them a while to do it though - 3 days, but was not noisy or anything, they did not bother me at all. . We ended up making friends with Wallace since when the work was being done he came here twice and made sure everything was going fine. Also, Prime was the only company that gave me 5 year really good warranty with details. Now if something happens to my house, it's going to be their problem, not mine, but the way they did it looks like nothing would happen. Very happy, and cheers to a nice inspector-termite-professor Mr. Wallace. Very satisfied, highly recomment. I did not move out from my house, and even though it was more expensive than tenting I feel like got a really good deal. For so much work it was worth it. This is a good company, I recommend them. If you also want a very experienced inspector to check your house ask for Wallace, this guy is a termite professor and is in this industry for over 20 years.

I had an amazing experience with Prestige. They are extremely knowledgeable, and take the time to explain what’s happening regarding the issues that are going on. Ramon is very patient, understanding, and has the experience to deal with any issues that come up. We currently use Prestige on a regular basis. Whether it’s bugs, termites, or construction issues that arise from problems, we can always count on Prestige to be reliable. I highly recommend Prestige.

I've only had great experiences with Flatline Termite Control. When my wife and I bought our first condo our loan was contingent on termite clearance. Our closing date was fast approaching when me made the call to Flatline Termite. They were extremely accommodating and willing to work with our extremely tight time frame. Ed and his crew came out to perform their inspection and completed the repair work within a couple days of us contacting them. We were able to meet our closing deadline because of how promptly they performed their job. But what really makes this company shine is the level of customer service exhibited by all their staff. They really treat their customer right.

I called these guys on a Friday afternoon and they came out the same day! What I thought would be a nightmare was actually a pleasant experience. A) they explained to me what exactly the problem was (subterranean termites). B) they told me a number of ways to deal with the problem [they gave me optioins]. As a home owner, I was expecting to run into this sort of problem. But I wasn't expecting to find termite guys like 24 hour. They are a no-hassle, quality business.

Unipest is the best! They’re local, family owned, and when you call there’s a human voice that answers the phone and if there’s a problem, they come out pretty quickly. Amir and Gilberto are very nice technicians and Cardon is extremely knowledgeable! They were just in the Santa Clarita parade!

Guardian Termite and Pest Control is everything I need in any company I am working with. I am a little high maintenance and have very high standards for work being done. I am picky and detailed. Guardian did everything I asked for and met every detail and request I had. Prompt, very professional, competitive, and very neat and clean. I had a unique challenge and they worked with me to think outside the box and completely fix the problem. I am very happy with the job they did and I will be using them again.

Yes, I think all homeowners don't like going through the process of getting their home inspected for termite, especially when you need to get your home tented. However, the Termite doctor made the whole process smooth and pleasant. They were very professional and did quality work. Great customer service and I appreciate them being on time and started working as soon as they arrived. Also, they completed the job as promised. I would highly recommend them. Thank you, Michelle-Tyla

I had a hard time finding a company that will help to resolve my pest problems. I found treebark online and I called them right away and I’m happy that they returned my call right away and needed to get done. They set a quick appointment and did a wonderful job. The exterminators came to our house was brisk. They did a thorough job; spraying all over through place and after that, they removed the pests. I saw an immediate result. This company was really in providing great customer service and care, the work they do for us is good and the price was right. Very reasonable! I’m a very satisfied customer. I will continue to use this service if ever I have a pest problem again.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do you get rid of termites?

The best way to get rid of termites is to act fast. Termites are a problem that will only get worse — and no matter how much you want them to, they usually don’t magically move out on their own. There are three main types of termites: drywood, dampwood and subterranean. Drywood and dampwood termites sneak through cracks in your exterior paint, nail holes, and gaps near windows and other openings and begin to eat through your wood. Subterranean termites enter your house from the ground up by creating mud tunnels. In all cases, they survive by eating the wood of your house. The type of termites you have can steer the treatment plan.

Methods of termite extermination include fumigation, use of pesticides, and use of natural elements that are poisonous to the bugs. The extent of your termite infestation will help determine the treatment method. If you have drywood or dampwood termites that have infiltrated all aspects of the wood in your home, the pest control pro may recommend enclosing the whole house in a tent and gassing the termites via fumigation. If you have subterranean termites, often the entire footprint of the home must be treated by drilling liquid treatments into the slab or foundation of the home to exterminate the colonies. In any case, once you see signs of termites, it’s time to take action and call a pest pro.  

What are the signs of termites in your home?

When you see signs of termites in your home, call a trusted pest control professional as soon as possible to handle the situation. Termites feed on wood, meaning they eat through the wood that makes up the frame, floors and other components of your house. Most people don’t know they have termites until they discover the damage done, because termites remain hidden underground or inside the wood they are eating. Keep on the lookout for these signs of termites:

  • Water bubbles in your interior or exterior paint: If you poke at what look like paint bubbles and find termite droppings inside, it’s a sign of termite infestation.
  • Frass: This is a fancy term for termite poop. Keep your eyes peeled for what look like six-sided salt and pepper droppings.
  • Mud tubes: Subterranean termites move between their earth home and your house by building mud tunnels. Mud tubes under or along the side of your house or foundation are a sure sign of a termite infestation.  
  • Wings or swarming near your home: As a new colony is looking for a home, they fly (swarm), then shed their wings and burrow into nearby wood.
  • Softening of wood or hollowed-out wood: Termites don’t like paint, lacquer varnish or other wood finishes, so they’ll eat inside the wood and leave the exterior finish like a shell.

Are termites harmful to humans?

Termites are harmful to humans in that they can eat a home from the inside out. But unlike some other insects, termites don’t carry infection, nor do they bite or feed off people like parasitic bedbugs. So while they’re not harmful to your health, they can be extremely harmful to your wallet. The EPA reports that every year termites cause billions of dollars of structural damage in the United States. Immediate action and treatment is the best approach if you see signs of termites. The national average cost for an exterminator ranges from $250 to $400, but costs may be higher if you have a whole house infestation on your hands. Here are a few examples of average cost:

  • Standard liquid treatment of subterranean termites: $3-$4 per linear foot. An extermination company may have a minimum service fee, such as $150, to come out and provide treatment, no matter how small the space.
  • Liquid treatment of subterranean termites including foaming and drilling into concrete slabs: $4-$5 per linear foot.
  • Liquid treatment of a 2,000-square-foot home for subterranean termites: approximately $400.
  • Fumigation treatment of drywood termites: $1,200-$1,500 for a 30,000- to 35,000-cubic-foot home. Pros measure fumigation costs in cubic feet. Fumigation costs can also be affected by the number of stories in your home.
